Most of the time road are related to motion. Especially at night, people are normally in a hurry trying to get to their destination. After years of doing night photography, I learn to stop and enjoy the night even in the middle of the road. Are you in a hurry?
Milky way above Grand Canyon. It is a composite as there is no way to capture the massive canyon on a moonless night. So the foreground is actually taken before dawn where there are enough light to have a long exposure shot of the majestic Grand Canyon, and at the same time dark enough so that the canyon fade into darkness in distance. Hope you enjoy it and have a great night!
Ooops..! Almost forgot….. my trips will always come back with some time lapse video. And this little shorts is combined with video from different trips over the last few years to the Canadian Rockies under my tight budget. 🙂
The amount of time I stayed is only about 5 weeks in total. But I did visited in different season and capture a little taste of most season.
After a long ride with the tow truck driver back to Lethbridge. I was settled very quickly with the repair shop and rental car. All I need is to wait for my car to be fix. I said to myself, there’s nothing I can do and let’s just enjoy the trip. So I went to another part of the Rockies which is not as popular as Banff or Jasper National Park. I am talking about Peter Lougheed Provincial Park just south of Canmore
A few close up shots of mountain peak under some different weather conditions. One below is from Wedge Pond
And my favorite has to be Kananaskis Lakes
Spent a night there capturing some time lapse, here is a frame from one of the nightscape time lapse
And I was driving with this car under the stars 🙂
After few days of waiting, the insurance company contacted me and told me they will not fix my car. So I ended up droves the rental car that was from Lethbridge back to Vancouver. And to end all my trips to the Rockies in 2016, I did another short trip with my friend. Basically drove all the way from Vancouver to Jasper and then down south to Highway 3 back to Vancouver in 3 days….! HA!! here are some of the short from that trip
